Bath time video

I uploaded some more bath videos to my Clip Shack site, but this was the best one!

Splish splash!

Caroline loves taking a bath. She always has. I guess she gets that from me. I was so glad we had the camera tonight: it was the first time she really splashed in the water. And besides, who doesn't love a naked baby picture???

Tigger (the smelly mutt) got a bath and a bone!

Bath toys are yummy

Lots of friends join in the fun

Oh boy!

Splash, splash, splash!

Important Caroline Developments

Sometimes people ask me what new things Caroline is doing. I don't know if these are a big deal or not, but we certainly think they are!
  • I saw her switch a toy from one hand to the other yesterday in the church nursery.
  • She was "clapping" this morning when she got excited about a toy - no noise, just brought her hands together repeatedly.
  • She occasionally balances for a split second when standing.
  • She's starting to "cruise" when she's standing.
  • She gets mildly upset when we stop her from doing something she wants to do. A stubborn streak perhaps?
  • She let Daddy chase her last night - she would crawl a few steps and then look back to see if he was still coming after her. So cute!
  • I saw her pick up a Cheerio with the pincher grasp this morning. It didn't make it to her mouth, but there was a definite thumb-pointer finger action!
  • I stuck my tongue out (like a dog) this morning and she stuck her tongue out! She was mimicking me! We've been doing the dog baby sign (tongue panting) for months. She knows what the dog is and looks for him when we say his name or ask her where the dog is. I think we might be getting close! The dog wasn't around during the mimicking session this morning, or I would certainly count it.

Of course, none of this is surprising considering we have the smartest baby in the world! He he he! ;-)

Happy Halloween!

I was feeling kind of lonely the other night and told Kevin, "No one leaves comments on my blog!" But when I logged in today I noticed that I had comments to moderate. Lo and behold, I had lots of sweet comments! I'm a goober... I've posted them now and am feeling much more loved! ;-) So, keep 'em comin' and thank you!

Chasing Caroline

Call to the post

And, she's off!

Wrinkly nose

I'm going to try to get a better picture, but this is her new smile. She wrinkles her nose, squints her eyes, and sniffs as she's laughing. We do it right back at her and she gets even more tickled!

Cool clothes

These "yoga pants" sure are good for all those fast moves! Wish I had a matching pair! Although I doubt they would make me as flexible... (Yes, they really make something called "yoga pants" for babies.)

Here she comes!

I get the biggest kick out of this. (Which brings up the question, "What about Caroline isn't amusing to me?" Very little...) And her little knees sliding on the hardwood is just too funny!

Red balloon

Too bad the balloon deflated in less than 24 hours. What a bummer... I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to.

I should remember to take this much delight in life's littlest things...

Caroline's fun game

Who knew peek-a-boo could be so much fun??? She's so silly!

Making music

This picture makes me so happy! Maybe she'll sit still long enough for me to teach her a thing or two someday...
